What is Slipcovered, Washable, and Fabulous?

Everything at Quatrine Home. (My four-year-old has recently been explaining things to me in riddles. It is so cute).

On a recent trip, I finally got to go into a Quatrine Home store. My sister, who lives in Dallas, has been telling me about it forever and now I know why. All of their furniture is slipcovered and machine washable and really beautiful.  I know it seems that slipcovered furniture is always washable but it is not so. Many pieces are dry clean only.


Some of my favorite pieces at Quatrine Home were the pillows;all covered in thick chunky linen with the most adorable ruffles in contrasting colors.


I also loved the many cotton and linen fabrics that they pre-wash to make amazing slipcovers. The lavender cotton velvet was to die for.

Their web-site doesn't do them justice. But check out their press section.  I found many familiar images from my inspiration files!  I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those fabrics!!!

Slipcovers are a challenge for me, I need to find the right fabric I think! I got some linen slipcovers made for a client 5 years ago and they are now totally worn out at the arms. . . sigh. . . back on the hunt for new fabric!
